So Easy Butterscotch Sheet Cake – Uses only 5 ingredients!!

Our church had a softball game last weekend, and I decided to dig out an old dusty recipe my mom used to make all the time when we were young! I knew they were super yummy, but what I didn’t remember is how CRAZY easy they are ! 

These butterscotch bars taste like you put a lot of time into them, but really it is just 4 simple ingredients that make this delicious cake. The topping adds a little crunch and the cake part is so moist from the pudding. 

Mom used to always make it in a 9×13 pan, but I decided to adapt the recipe to feed a larger number of people and made it in our favorite half sheet pan. If you want to make it in a 9×13 pan, just halve the recipe!

You just heat the milk and pudding mix until boiling, stir in the cake mix, and dump in a greased pan.

Then sprinkle the butterscotch chips and nuts on top, bake for 30 minutes, and that’s it. Crazy right?
